Did WWII Germany do a better job of feeding people than WWI Germany?

I've read that a big reason for Germany's surrender in WWI was due to famine, that people were actually starving to death in some cases. I can't say I've heard the same about Germany during 1939-45.

Was Nazi Germany somehow better equipped to deal with food procurement than Imperial Germany? Or was food just as big a factor and I'm just unaware?
They had the whole of France to supply food in WW2 as well as Ukrainian wheat for a few years. The Kaiser never got his hands on those!
